Today I want to introduce the Spanish brand David Christian, created in 2000, after which they are Paloma Chacon and Maria Roca, mother and daughter, which form a perfect team .David Christian is a perfect option for bridesmaids and guests who want to be dressed elegantly demonstrating their own style but without fanfare or frilly, a youthful, stylish and sophisticated woman.
David Christian is a spanish fashion brand company of clothing made to measure and which can combine cuts, fabrics and patterns that suits every body, without leave the craftsmanship.
We enter the exciting world of a brand which has conquered many women’s wardrobes , and that I personally love.
– How were your beginnings in the world of fashion?
We started 14 years ago by our designs based on the style that we like. At first we just design casual or sport clothes, but we realized there was a gap in the segment of dresses for weddings guests, bridesmaids and of course brides.
– How do you get the inspiration?
We inspire each collection exclusively on how we see our clients, we think that in designs and cuts which can favor our clientes, and we know from our experience, that you feel well, when you are all combined with a colorful mix that you never imagine that it’s cool.
– Do you remember the first piece or garment which you created ?
Yes, it was a sport jacket which was completely a basic garment during a long time. Of course, we quickly made the dress version.
– What kind of woman goes David Christian?
David Christian goes to a woman who loves to dress classy but not overdone, who appreciates the design and color combination, who count with us and put your trust in David Chrsitian, knowing that your dress will be special, take care of all details to go perfect and she will be the prettiest in the wedding
– What is the reason you began to design also for brides?
We started making wedding dresses as soon after the first collection of prom dresses, but really sice de Maria’s weddings, almost 6 years ago… Since Mary’s wedding was when we began to meet more people. Her wedding was published in Telva Bride’s magazine and it was a bombshell because the dress was perfect and she also had to leave home wearing a pair of sneakers because it had rained a lot. For years they have been asking for that dress. It caused a sensation so simple but well-cut.
– What is the difference between David Christian and the other wedding dresses proposals that we can find in the market?
David Christian is different from other proposals in the infinite of possibilities which the bride has to make the dress of her dreams, we advise her, We tried on them the pieces of the dress got to see the effect of a dress according to what each wants .we finally got that look as if they were going out with the dress in that moment .
-The shooting of the new collection was held in New York ,how was the experience? Why did you choose the city of dreams for this occasion?
It was a decision that we made a few months ago, It made us very excited to do the catalog in New York, This was our dream and finally it comes true. There was an exciting experience, a great marathon because although we are designed the locations in that big city it was a madness we were very lucky with the weather and we went all well (we must be said that we get a great make-up artist).
-Essential for a Cocktail …
A simple dress with beautiful cuts and not overdone
– If a dress you had to set the current time.. how would you do?
Superfeminine … We are in a beautiful stage, with very flattering colours and fabrics with fall like crepes that don’t fail.
– Optimism and elegance mark the key of the spring summer collection. How is the collection of David Christian for this 2014? What are the star fabrics this season?
The collection of this season has feminine cuts that favor all kinds of women, from the youngest to the oldest, they have crepes with a great fall and also especially for the consistency that enhances the figure but it doesn’t stick to the body.
– Where can we buy your collections?
We just opened a store on Calle Almirante 18 which it’s very nice. It’s a cozy space in which women find themselves with extra attention and a friendly atmosphere. We designed it according our taste avoid being another shop more. Also in our shop you can see our collection on Manuela Minguez 11.
– And finally , where would you like to see your collections? Of course on the runways of Paris and New York, it would be our great hope.
